    Barnes bullets make a cooper ,JHP -bullet Same as DPX Corbon that consistly expands & reaches your desired target! Here's a link to Barnes site where you can not only order ammo but you can apply for a FREE DVD titled Bullet Myths!

    Might very well be. All I know is the gun always did like 147 grainers.
    I was chompin at the bit to shoot the HST's and when the first three rounds bullseyed that target I was again at peace. Barrel be darned everything about this round so far is proving the old adage that those heavy bullets wouldn't expand wrong. I feel the manufacture has overcome that with this round.

    If I carries a 9mm it would be with +P 115 GR. DPX.

    What's the difference between these two Federal 147g loads?
    http://ammunitiontogo.com/catalog1/p...low-point-ammo

    http://ammunitiontogo.com/catalog1/p...low-point-ammo

    Aren't the Hydra-Shock and HSTs the same?

    Thanks.

    They are not the same. Hydra-Shocks are the older design with the post in the middle. HSTs are a new design and seem to be one of the best out there.

    Here's a link to a test someone did of various 9 mm rounds:

    http://frag.110mb.com/


    Here's another test:

    http://www.btfh.net/shoot/bullet-test-2.html


    There is also the test done by a member on this forum:

    http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ad.php?t=37238


    And another one by the same person:

    http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=796298

    (Sorry if some of these links are repeats. I haven't read this whole thread.)

    I'm certainly not saying HSTs are the absolute best, but they always fare well. They are my choice in my .45, and will be when I start carrying a 9mm.

    Thanks for clarifying the differences with the Hydra-Shocks and HSTs.

    Looks like I'll be another guy using the 147g HSTs for my PM9. Are they usually cheaper than the Hydra-Shocks like in the links I posted?

    I don't know about price. I've only bought the .45 version once. I'll be buying some 9 mm soon.

    hey slimjim ,no hornady's ? actually i dont see hornady tap mentioned much or at all for that matter. i think they are a premium ammo. beside price ,which is right on with any of the above mentioned ammo , why dont any of you guys use there bullets ? i am a new pistol lover. shotguns have been my hobby for years. now im in a pistol friendly state and am learning slowly but surely. i have a ruger sr9 and a glock21 ,not the sf. i stocked up on hornady 147gr. hollow points ,you know with the black nickel coated jackets. i notice that 124 gr is used much more by everyone. i dont question the lower wieght bullet but why not hornady? federal , corbon , magsafe , winch , are used by all. WHY NOT HORNY'S
